# 225 : The Melbourne Tree scarf is one of a number of really clever, quirky, Melbourne themed scarves designed by Maree Coote for Melbourne Style. It features a stylised tree design containing a variety of local Australian birds, embellished with a mad mix of local floral blossoms from banksia to wisteria.The names and addresses of a dozen of Melbourne’s legendary parks and gardens are rendered in fine script between the branches. Smoke, black and white on warm white silk give a pearly luxury. 100% SILK 97x97cm. You browse and buy it and a whole bunch of other clever designs here.

# 224 : I have found a wonderful Melbourne based clothing accessories label producing the most wonderful soft drapey knitted scarves (among other pieces) that combine hand-worked elements with knit fabric created on vintage knitting machines (her words). PRIMOEZA by Elizabeth Rayman Yong. I love just about everything I have seen of hers but her scarves are to die for. She lists her stockists here in case you are interested in searching her out. Gorgeous, understated and very very wearable. Delicious!!!
# 221 : Gone dotty over this simply gorgeous Marc Jacobs cashmere and silk-blend scarf . Polka dots come in and out of trend as regularly as animal print … and it’s a look I really love – and in my colours too!!! You can wear this piece on a color-block top for maximum impact. Available at Net-s-Porter for just USD450.00
# 220 : Loved this gorgeous hot pink “rose” LV scarf worn here by SJP. Perfect for her.
# 219 : I am a bit of a sucker for a yummy handknit – and a cableknit even more so (hard to tell if you are a regular visit to my blog really!!!) So when I saw this amazing (read amazing) Burberry giant chunky cableknit scarf in my travels … I just had to bring it to your attention. It makes me want to pick up the knitting needles (because I certainly can’t afford to buy one at USD850.00). It’s long long long (200cm) and knitted in 100% cotton. GORGEOUS!!!!!!! So, if you have the best part of a thousand dollars in your bottom drawer … you can get one from Burberry online.
